    SHRM offers the SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP human resources designations.

    HRCI offers three levels of certification intended for professionals currently working in the human resource management field. You can become certified as either a Professional in Human Resources (PHR) or a Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR). To be eligible to take either the PHR or SPHR exam, you should have a minimum of two years of exempt-level HR work experience.

    If you have international or global responsibilities you may also certify as a Global Professional in Human Resources (GPHR).
